We have eaten here a few times now for Sunday lunch. The staff are very welcoming and friendly, nothing too much trouble. The carvery is great. There are 3 choices of meat and they do child's portions too. The roast potatoes, veg and trimmings are all great as well as the meats. There is plenty to choose from to fill... More

We visited for a wedding. The guests arrived 15 minutes prior to invitation time. Neither landlord or landlady was there to welcome the wedding couple. The buffet was not set up and the cake was still in its box. There was no bar staff available and guests had to go to the public bar for service. It was 15 minutes... More

If this was regarding the wedding on the 1/04/17 then the wedding turned up over an hour early.That would have been why the buffet wasn't ready and also there wasn't an extra member of staff present at the time, this would also explain why there wasn't someone present to pour the glasses of wine etc. We are a pub and...

Visited in February, party of four adults. Found this establishment very shabby although reasonably clean. Not very quick service.. was noisy. Personally, my turkey was tough, and vegetables not very hot at all and rather crunchy. Will not specially recommend.

Have frequented this establishment several times to meet friends after work for drinks and watch football (multiple screens/ample seating). Have received a warm welcome and exemplary service from the bar staff (especially Laura who is a real asset to this place). Not normally one to leave reviews but feel obligated to for The Beeswing tonight as they have just served... More

Had a bit of lunch after a game of bowling just down the road. Clean and tidy pub. Very good pint of Everards. Fairly standard and cheap pub grub, no complaints there. The girl behind the bar was helpful and friendly. A bit of a soulless pub but most places like this are!

Went here tonight with a group of friends. I'm horrified to say the least at how my friend was treated he was shouted at and humiliated in front of the whole pub and bullied by the owner/ manager for putting a piece of rubbish that was on our table into a bin at the bar . He then proceeded to... More

I have eaten at the beeswing many a times and have always enjoyed my meal, the Sundays lunch carvery is by far my favourite roast in and around town, it's a reasonable price, it is always steaming hot and well stocked up.

Absolutely delicious. Reliable good grub and a decent price. Never disappointed at all. I have eaten here for a few years and I haven't had a bad meal yet. They even do a few gluten free options which is great.
